April is National Poetry Month! The rain soaked grass rests in spring
glory. The sun's hand on my head, a breeze wraps its arm around my
shoulder, reminds me why I live here—enough!
Sometimes you just can’t force
it. But it is beautiful today.
April 25th The Open Door Women’s Prison and Re-Entry Ministry is
having its 6th Annual motorcycle fundraiser ride, Chili~Hogs, sponsored by the Water’s
Edge Riders. Not a motorcyclist myself, I appreciate the WER’s commitment to
At the end of the run (University UMC, 3501 Patrick St., Lake Charles) The Open Door will serve chili dogs from Noon until 2 PM. As a faith-based community organization over twenty churches are represented in the people participating to make this fundraiser a success. It’s always great fun and everyone (Including YOU!) are welcome to lunch, and listen to live gospel/bluegrass music with Charles Manuel and Friends.
I know it’s a commercial, but as president of The Open Door,
it’s what I do. Hope you’ll come pass a good time with us and hear some of the
fabulous testimonies from women who are turning their lives around. If you’d like to know more about our prison
